TEACHING IN THE ASSC PROGRAM IS OF TWO GENERAL TYPES--REMEDIAL INSTRUCTION IN READING AND ARITHMETIC, AND TUTORIAL INSTRUCTION IN SCIENCE, MATHEMATICS, FOREIGN LANGUAGES, ENGLISH, AND SOCIAL STUDIES. IN THE REMEDIAL PROGRAM, CONSIDERABLE PERSUASION, BUT NOT COMPLUSION, IS BROUGHT TO BEAR UPON THE PUPILS AND POTENTIAL DROPOUTS TO AVAIL THEMSELVES OF THE OPPORTUNITY TO IMPROVE. TUTORIAL SERVICES ARE PROVIDED PRIMARILY FOR PUPILS WHO, WITH SOME HELP, MAY BECOME COLLEGE MATERIAL.
